In general scenario, compliance means adhering to a rule or regulation as and when made effective by the government with respect to any law or order. Compliance by the companies are required to be done in order to make the clean image of the corporate and avoid the penalties as prescribed by the government with respect to non-compliance. Companies need to diligently make efforts in order to comply with the relevant laws, policies, and regulations.

    I would like to discuss:

    What if we  will not comply with the rules and regulations as prescribed by the government from time to time?

    If a legal entity doesn’t comply with the rules and regulations as prescribed by the government from time to time then they will get penalized with fine and if the directors are in default and they will also get penalized under the act whether with fine or imprisonment or both, depending upon case to case.
